It’s #TALLSHIPSTUESDAY! Let’s learn about Appledore V

Posted by Tall Ships America on July 12, 2016

These next few months will feature our fleet of vessels that you can see, hear, and touch when they come to your host city this summer as part of the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes 2016 Race Series.

Where she sails

Bay City, MI. This summer she’ll be in the following ports: Tall Ships® Fairport Harbor; Tall Ship Celebration: Bay City; Pepsi® Tall Ships® Chicago 2016; Tall Ship Festival (Green Bay) presented Nicolet National Bank; Tall Ships® Erie 2016

Fun Fact

This spring, BaySail launched a new program called SEA SCHOLAR. Four high school students set sail for a 30 day voyage aboard Appledore V from Key West, FL to Bay City, MI. It’s been an amazing voyage! You can read about the experience so far and follow along through Bay Sail’s website.  

The backstory

Not much has changed since we visited with Appledore IV last week, but you can read the backstory on last week’s #TALLSHIPSTUESDAY post.

Who Sails

All ages, K-12 Students
